Blue

I am helpless

I am speechless

The wait is unbearable

God the giver and taker

I have been bargaining

My heart aches

My tears untamed

I can’t lose you, not now

Verklempt

Verklempt

My dear darling

I have not forsaken you

This is not abandonment

It hurts to be away from you

Memories overwhelm me

Your essence engulf me

When I play your favorite song

This time we shared is sacred

Forever and always

My heart will be grateful

Body and Mind

I think it’s time

Said Body to Mind

It’s my turn to take care of you

But how will Susan function?

The mindful Mind asked

She’s tired already

Replied the Body

It’s her time to rest

Are you sure this is a good idea?

The concerned Mind asked

Yes, I know it’s a great idea

Look at her- She’s been insentient

It’s time she get released

I will take care of you both

The protective Body answered

“Hey guys, what’s up?

Why are my legs and hands numb?

Why can’t I construct a meaningful sentence?

Are you two fighting again?”

Pss, Body, should I answer her?

No, she’s a smart one, replied Body

“Hello, can you guys hear me?

I took you for a walk

I bought your favorite food

I didn’t forget to hydrate

Why aren’t you responding?

Oh wait, I feel sickly

My tummy is acting up

My eyes are tired

I can feel a migraine coming

Let me freshen up and turn in

You guys must be tired

I understand

Thank you for always taking care of me.”

Goodnight beautiful

Acclimation


I am getting used to
Sitting on the patio simply relaxing
Listening to reggae while sipping wine
Walking along the beach
Feeling the ocean with my feet
Caressing the white sand
Listening to the sound of the crashing waves
Appreciating the ambience, silence and
Being at peace with my mind

Stormy

Nothing could have prepared me for this

My excitement was unmatched

I did not expect to lose so soon

I thought I did my best

But my best wasn’t your best

High on Life

Carry on,

Don’t worry about unfamiliar things

Sometimes it is difficult to notice

The night sky dancing with the stars

One drink turning into a stupor

Don’t let yourself lose control

Pay attention to your rhythm

The fires in your soul

The flower fields in your mind

The strength in your spirit

It will guide you back home

Beautiful one

Who are you when you are high on life?

Anniversary

I have experienced hatred

I have experienced love

I know betrayal

I know anger

I know depression

I know hope

I have enemies

I have friends

The events that happened

I’m grateful I lived to see them

Unapologetic

Experiencing life with ease

I deserve peace of mind

Happiness

Comfort

I am worthy of everything great in life

Happy anniversary to me

Expectations

I’ve been thinking about this for sometime now.

Reflecting back on the things that happened to me

Re-evaluating all the measures I could have done

But I ended up with the same conclusion each time

“My expectations on others got me hurt”

I decided to have no expectations on people for a change

And surprisingly for a week now

I’m enjoying my peace of mind

My deduction

Have no expectations when it comes to dealing with people

For example,if you have someone who’s mean to you and you keep asking them to stop being mean

They won’t, they will disappoint you every time

But once you stop minding how they act and accept them for who they really are

They gradually change or it’s like they realize your attention is somewhere else and now they start to treat you better

I hope this makes sense to you as it does to me 🤣

Have a lovely week ahead

PS: Stay safe, sanitize, wash your hands, wear your mask, and observe the social distance.
